Over the years, we’ve seen quite our share of interesting things arise from Japan. We’ve seen snail facials, Japanese commercials that don’t make sense, and even edible iphone cases.
We figured that by now we would expect the unexpected and not react when we heard about the new products and trends. Yet again, we were wrong. As much as we tried to understand this product we simply couldn’t figure out its appeal.
This product, I kid you not, is underwear which deliberately creates a camel toe. Now for those of you who don’t quite know what a camel toe is, Wikipedia defines is as “a slang term that refers to the outline of a human female’s labia majora, as seen through tightly fitting clothes. Due to a combination of anatomical factors and the tightness of the fabric covering it, the crotch andmons pubis may take on a resemblance to the forefoot of a camel.”
Commonly, this is the sort of thing you avoid. In fact, there are a number of rather successful products which try to help women with this problem. Camelflage is a small insert in panties which guarantees that you will be camel toe-free.
For whatever reason, this Japanese brand is embracing the camel toe and making sure it is part of our daily lives. Our verdict?
No, thank you.
*UPDATE: We were informed that this is speculated to be a gag costume for men. We’re crossing our fingers that it is indeed just a joke.

In Audrey Magazine‘s Spring issue, we opened our Audrey Style section with an ode to all things blooming in jewelry. But it’s not just jewelry that’s gone daffodils. I can’t get enough of the fleur du jour look seen everywhere, from jeans to bags to even cosmetics.
Floral prints this spring go from sophisticated watercolor interpretations:
(Editor’s note: Picture the Jonesy watercolor top with a pair of tough skinny pants, like on Eugenia here. This spring, anyone can do floral, even your rocker types.)
